Why we love this app
McGraw-Hill has been providing students with excellent instructional textbooks to help prepare for the standardized advanced placement tests for years. Before the advent of apps, students carried their weighty textbooks around. Though priced higher than the average app, it's a deal compared to the print version.
What it teaches and how it works
The McGraw-Hill app provides the information covered on the tests with a series of flashcards. Though not as in-depth as the AP review textbooks, it provides the essentials. Users can go through and review individual subjects before taking one of the full-length practice tests, which keep track of scores and which questions were marked wrong/unknown for later review.
Why your kid won't be able to put it down
If your student has signed up for the AP test and is dedicated to achieving a 3, 4, or 5, thereby earning college credit, they'll find this app an invaluable tool. The flashcards, preliminary quizzes, and practice tests provide ample occupation and preparation.
